I originally had this up on the main section of my website but then I thought that I should just leave that for art- and conceptually driven projects so blogging about it instead!
I shot these portraits for the Agagpe Ministries website a couple of months ago and I’ve only just gotten around to posting them up now!
Two posts in one night?? Aren’t you all lucky people ;)
my major documentary photography project for my Documentary Practice module in college this semester was to make a book, so that’s what I did. It’s called Common History and it’s on myself and my best friend and I’ve wanted to do it for the longest time! It’s a personal exploration of how when we were babies, we were in the same hospital for the same amount of time (although a year apart), we were treated by the same doctor for visual impairment and yet we each turned out completely differently. The book uses archival images, self-portraits and portraits to tie us together visually.

Just to let you all know that I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth and I’m still alive! I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t had time to sit down and blog properly. I’ll have my editorial calender sorted out and back to normal next week, promise! Now onto the purpose of this post: updates!
I’ve achieved things on my goals / aspirations list for this year! (See post from January here).
I’ve made business cards, I’ve had an exhibition of my work, hung my own photographs (this didn’t turn out the way I had hoped, but that can’t really be helped; everything’s a learning experience, right?) and most importantly, I’ve been accepted to my dream course: BA Fine Art Print and Time-based Media at Wimbledon College of Art in London! (Course link here). I’m so unbelievably happy about this, it’s part of the reason I haven’t been blogging much, I’ve been so busy trying to sort everything out for moving and that; plus, I only have five weeks left in college so I’m busy with end of year stuff too.
On the subject of college work, my current project is a documentary-style book on myself and my best friend, it’ll have self-portraits, portraits of my best friend and archival images. It’ll hopefully be available to buy through Blurb when it’s finished so I’ll keep you updated on that! I’m also working on a book (also made with Blurb) of fashion images so hopefully that will be available to buy too.
Finally, more good news that came through today, I won a Caroline Issa for LK Bennett iPhone case from Canned Fashion! I never win anything… I think my luck is starting to turn!
This week, I’m doing something a little different by showcasing a video that I’ve loved, rather then a photograph.
Rhett & Link are a comedy duo comprised of Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal. They are musicians and filmmakers, also (a bit like Flight of the Concords). I first heard of them through their “Thoughful Guy” rap video (I’ve written a blog post on here about it, do a search ;)). This brilliant video is “29 things you should never say” aka “Famous Last Words”. The editing is quick, the viewer doesn’t have time to see what happens to the pair after one of them, for example says “Let’s do that thing where you drive a car at me, and I jump over it”. In this, the viewer makes their own mind up about what happens to the subjects in the video.

The absence over the last few weeks is due to it being the end of the semester and having a million and one things to do. I’ll be back to regular posting next week. (And have a few more images to show, too). This time it’s “Attend Tornoto Internatonal Film Festival“. This takes place every year in September and looks incredible. I’m trying to convince myself that going next summer is a good idea… The films that won awards at this year’s festival are here. Their Youtube channel page is here, where you can watch trailers and previews.
Have you ever been? Did you like it? Would you go again?
